Pondicherry is one of the important tourist destinations and this place bears a wonderful history and heritage. Pondicherry was a French colony and the French culture rapidly mingled with the existing Indian culture of those days.
French came to this land to spread their business and that made them to stay on in this land. Pondicherry experienced the richest culture of France as this small union territory was untouched by the British for along period of time.
Pondicherry is a mishmash of French and Indian culture that can be seen in the form of various festivals and fairs that take place in this tiny, yet historic piece of land.
